So, here you are completely nonplussed and in search of the best mascaras for volumizing your lashes. I know, it’s a minefield with SO many different mascara formulas available trying to figure out which are volumizing, which are lengthening, and which products are actually worth the money can be extremely tricky.
I’m sure we’re all in agreement, mascara is possible one the most (if not the most!) important product to make your makeup up look complete. Of course, lengthened, fanned-out lashes are fabulous but it’s really time for volumized lashes to have their moment. After all, who doesn’t want thick, alluring lashes to flutter?
What are volumizing mascaras
In short, volumizing mascaras are superb for making your lashes look dramatic. If you’re a little lacking in the thick lash department than choosing a volumizing mascara could be the missing ingredient in your makeup routine.
Volumizing mascaras give that false lash effect without having to go through that sticky struggle of actually applying fake lashes. We’ve all been there, right? Running late and trying to stick on a false lash that just doesn’t want to play ball. Why not cut out the frustration and apply a mascara that gives that same effect? No glue required.
The effect a mascara gives is usually all down to the wand bristles with a little help from the correct formula. You’ll find the bigger the wand usually equals the bigger the lashes. Wands packed with bristles are designed to deposit product to give a lot of coverage to your lashes. In turn, this then loads even the smallest of your lashes up with product, creating extra volumized and incredibly sultry lashes.
